Alan Davis DrakeWalt Whitman - Song of Myself and Other Poems

something has gone horribly wrong 8-p
Prefer flash? · Embed · Questions/Feedback?

Song of Myself is the core of Walt Whitman's opus magnum, Leaves of Grass. In it he celebrates himself not simply as the poet Walt Whitman in all of his great complexity, but he transcends his own "me-ness" and in doing so welcomes and embraces all of humanity and the natural world each and every corner of it equally, without reservation. Whitman is true, natural and spontaneous, without affectations. He lived comfortably in the 19th Century world, however it manifest.

All 52 individual sections of Song of Myself are now downloadable. The 52 sections are also assembled into four groups of 13 poems each. These recordings were make in a variety of venues and times, so recording qualities differ.

Also included in this collection are other Whitman poems, along with a few samples from his prose writings in Specimen Days. Many of these recordings were made for LibriVox.org, others are either studio or public performances recorded at schools, libraries, and other locations.

This is an on-going collection. More recordings will be added over time.
